Yes, I got my key cut at a standard lock smiths and it works a treat but it wont unlock the immobiliser. You can get a fob of ebay for tuppence but finding someone to reprogram it would be about 25+ as thats teh cheapest I found.

I had a search online and you can get people who travel to where you are and program it in whilst you are at work but I cant recommend any company in particular as I havent recieved my fob yet off ebay. The job is a simple job for the people with the tools so there wont be much difference in the "quality" of the work. If it works it works, but 25 is the cheapest I found tho

There was a guy on ebay recently selling genuine MG key blanks for about a tenner. I think it is the same person who sells the genuine front MG badges.
